PoLS-T Summer Workshop: Using Physics Education Research to Improve High School Physics

Date: Tuesday, July 12, 2022 (All day) to Thursday, July 14, 2022 (All day) EST
Location: Harvard University

The PoLS-T network was formed in 2020 with the goal to understand the challenges in physics education at the high school level that impact the quality of high school physics. PoLS-T has begun a productive and focused conversation leading to authentic partnerships with teachers and researchers about ways to improve the quality and access to physics. The Network approach is one where classroom educators take the lead to create space for innovation and insights from current practitioners.

In the July 2022, PoLS-T will bring educators together for an in-person workshop to work on topics that propose to advance and support high school physics education in the US and internationally.

The PoLS-T Summer Workshop will be a small group of up to 25 participants. Invitation only.

What if the global pandemic is happening for us, not to us? How might that inform how we make sense of our current reality and imagine what might be possible in education moving forward? In this interactive talk, Julie will highlight the changes that were already underway in schools pre-COVID and lead us on a journey of reflection and visioning as we continue to navigate this liminal time.
